Their names are identical in Japanese, and the name Barba is, in fact, re-translated into Volvagia in the re-release of The Adventure of Link on the Game Boy Advance as well as in The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition strategy guide. Also given the fact that Sheik is actually Zelda, it is possible that she herself may have had a prophetic vision of the Hero of Time before she encounter Link under the guise of Sheik (possibly during the seven years Link slept). — Malon Hee hee! Zelda's apparent alignment with Nayru, the Goddess long associated with the establishment of the laws of science and nature, including time; it has been suggested that she is the Goddess of Time spoken of by Zelda herself in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, which Zelda entreated to protect and look after Link on his journey to Termina. The Poe Sisters could very well be the ghosts of said family. If one compares the map. This would yield different goddess associations: Farore would be associated with the elements Life and Wind, and the elements would be embodied through Forest and Air, respectively. the first 3D video games, and was the first 3D Zelda game.

Some fans believe that Stallord, the boss of the Arbiter's Grounds, is Volvagia's skeleton. They come from many sources and are not checked. The control scheme introduced techniques such as context-sensitiveactions and a targeting system called "Z-targeting", which allows the player to have Link focu… — Happy Mask Salesman, The Happy Mask Salesman appears to be more than a simple salesman. Because the item is found at the Bottom of the Well where the man's house once stood, this seems implied. The Happy Mask Salesman's mystical powers and vast amount of knowledge could denote that the Happy Mask Salesman is not a Hylian, but rather, a Deity or the earthly avatar of one, or in the very least a higher being not of Terminan or Hyrulean soil. They mentioned that he had grown into an evil man with a lust for power and had broken their laws by stealing a Trident deep in the desert that gave him incredible powers, such as transforming him into Ganon. This Cucco can be used to reach the roof and the back entrance to Impa's house, allowing Link to get a Gold Skulltula on top of the house and a Piece of Heart inside. While the Gerudo Desert does appear in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the Spirit Temple is nowhere to be seen. A Female Monkey guides Link on his journey to the Sacred Grove (much like Saria in Ocarina of Time). Ocarina of Time (OoT) is often considered the greatest game of all time. The game creators also seem to be fond of the idea of romance between the characters. Link eventually retrieves the Lens of Truth, a Sheikah item that allows him to see the truth, from the Bottom of the Well in the village. In Skyward Sword, Link obtains all three pieces of the Triforce in a place which appears to be the Silent Realm, given the area's identical appearance, method of entry, and Link's lack of items in the area. This would not be the first or last time two characters turned out to be the same person: the Owl from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is revealed to be the Wind Fish's spirit, the King of Red Lions from The Wind Waker turns out to be Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule. Lake Hylia (ハイリア湖 Hairia-Ko?, Hylian LHylian AHylian KHylian EHylian SpaceHylian HHylian YHylian LHylian IHylian A) is a recurring location in the Legend of Zelda series. It is unknown why this change would have occurred, since the Zoras in Oracle of Ages have been shown to be able to live in the sea off the coast of the island ofLabrynna. In the theories that place Four Swords subseries as the earliest games in the chronology, it is possible that Vaati could be the Man Who Could See the Truth or the proverbial Adam of the Sheikah tribe. It is possible that, "A long time ago there was an evil dragon named Volvagia living in this mountain. It appears as though there is another Mogma here. The body proportions, in terms of arm length, horn size and shape, and facial structure, are quite similar. Although she is initially a little frustrated with this duty and does not believe Link capable of acts of heroism, she soon becomes much fonder of him, and they become an inseparable team. The theories below are about characters, items, songs, races and places from The Legend of Zelda series, that can be associated or directly related to the Sheikah. Once Link and Tatl reach the Clock Tower, they encounter a mysterious man known as the Happy Mask Salesman who knows of a way to return Link back to his original form: if Link can retrieve the Ocarina of Time, he will return him to normal. What does OOT mean in Hobbies? It is possible that Lake Hylia is named after the goddess Hylia introduced in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward. It is likely, although never explicitly stated, that King Zora's Chamber and the Zora's ThroneKing Zora's Chamber Room from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess are one and the same. Another possibility is that the Hero of Time was a title used to referred to a past incarnation or incarnations of Link that preceded the events of Ocarina of Time (as there may have been other incarnations of Link in between the events of Skyward Sword & Ocarina of Time), which have become legendary figures only spoken of Hyrule's various myths and legends. — Nintendo Power Player's Guide. As their home is remade into the Bazaar in the Adult Timeline and no mention is made of any member of his family thereafter, it is reasonable to assume that the boy's family took the opportunity to accept an offer for their house and have fled beyond the influx of citizens to Kakariko and the changed Hyrule Kingdom, because if the boy's father was the Kakariko guard to Death Mountain, all of Hyrule's guards had either been killed by Ganondorf's wrath or fled Hyrule altogether in exile when Link becomes an adult. Evidence supporting this theory is the fact that Ciela, the Spirit of Courage, is also the Spirit of Time. They have dark tanned skin, golden eyes and red hair. It is possible that when Demise stated "Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero," when he put a curse on Link and Zelda, he was actually referring to the "spirit of the hero" as a form of will or a set of personality traits rather than the soul itself. [8] With the Ocarina of Time and the Song of Time in hand, Link opens the path to the Sacred Realm, unwittingly allowing Ganondorf to sneak in and touch the Triforce, which ultimately causes it to break into three separate pieces.[9]. However, the grave in Kakariko Village states that the plural of Sheikah is simply Sheikah. While non-canonical, in the manga, the Happy Mask Salesman's eyes are occasionally open, but since the manga is printed in black and white, it is impossible to determine the eye color. Just as real-world legends are retold with different variations (e.g. Some even go as far to say that the Sheikah are the Interlopers from whom the Twili are descended, as, being so close to the Royal Family, they would know much of the Triforce. In the second issue for the Ocarina of Time manga, Navi is charged by the Great Deku Tree to assist Link in his quest. It is a transverse ocarina (also known as a "sweet potato ocarina"). Link travels back to the past and plays it for him, causing the Windmill to speed up, draining the water from the well, and allowing Link access to the catacomb-like complex below. Ganondorf's Level 3 weapons are the Swords of Demise, while their 8-Bit versions are the 8-Bit Magical Keys. Link travels back to the past and plays it for him, causing the Windmill to speed up, draining the water from the well, and allowing Link access to the catacomb-like complex below. There are many theories as to why Navi would so abruptly leave Hyrule without any apparent explanation. One hint of a romance between Zelda and Link is given at the end of The Adventure of Link, when the awakened Princess apparently kisses Link under the falling curtain. In the Termina Map, the Song of Time and Inverted Song of Time Item Cards are represented by the Ocarina of Time. In Ocarina of Time, there is a young boy who can be found playing in Kakariko Graveyard when Link is a child. The final similarity is that the boy makes no appearance when Link is an adult, and the Ghost Hunter makes no appearance when Link is a child. It is notable that when Demise put a curse onto the Skyward Sword Link and Zelda, he stated "Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero." The nature of this deity may also be that of an inter-dimensional hero, explaining his presence in both Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

Both the Interlopers and the Twili have red eyes as the Shadow Folk. This child is never seen when Link returns to Kakariko Village as an adult, and it is possible that he somehow becomes the Ghost Hunter and relocates to the ruins of Hyrule Castle Town. Due to the Temple's location in Kakariko Graveyard, close proximity to Kakariko Village a former Sheikah village, the Sheikah association with shadows such as being called the "Shadows of Hyruleans" or "Shadow Folk", and Impa status as the Sage of Shadow. Also, Midna has red hair, just like the Gerudo, though it is unknown whether red is a typical Twili hair color or not. This knowledge should seemingly have been provided before embarking on a certain part of the quest to gain access to the Shadow Temple, in which Link must travel back in time to obtain the Lens of Truth from the Bottom of the Well. The inhabitants of Forest Haven are strange creatures known as the Koroks, who are believed to be descendants of the Kokiri race. This is supported by the fact that that Skull Kid knows "Saria's Song". This may explain why Zant felt he deserved to be king; a single Gerudo male is born every one hundred years and made the leader of the Gerudo, and Zant would have been born approximately one hundred years after Ganondorf. Meanwhile, Link's mother is stated to have died shortly after reaching the forest, but no information is given concerning his father. His behavior, however, is vastly different than that of the Garo spirits wandering the area, and his knowledge of ghosts extends well beyond the Garo—suggesting that he is not a Garo himself, nor more connected to them than to any other kind of spirit. Throughout the Arbiter's Grounds, wall engravings show a figure with a shield fighting a large monster, possibly Stallord, which may suggest that Stallord's first death was because of an ancient hero and not of natural causes. This has never been confirmed by Nintendo. Notably, the Lens of Truth resembles the Sheikah Emblem, which is interesting considering that Kakariko was once a Sheikah village. "Forest folk shall not For example, the Rito have wings that hang down at their elbows, and the Zoras have fins at the same place. The Ghost Hunter's robe, as well as his frequent appearances in the Ikana area and knowledge of the Garo, may suggest some connection to the Garo tribe. The symbol used to represent the Kokiri is reminiscent of the shape of the Kokiri's Emerald. Although seemingly unlikely, it is possible that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess drew inspiration from this symbol. It is never outright stated that there was another Hero of Time before the Link of Ocarina of Time appeared. He seems to know all about. In addition to being a temple it may have also been used a sort of Training Ground for the Sheikah similar to the Gerudo's Training Ground. After re-entering the Windmill by way of its connecting tunnel, Link can pass over to the ledge where the Piece of Heart is found by riding part of the mill wheel construction. Indeed, Zoras are divided into two known major subspecies: theRiver Zoras, and the Sea Zoras. Whenever the Salesman is angered, his eyes can be clearly seen to be blood red, however, this may be due to the fact that his eyes are bloodshot due to the anger and frustration. In The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Talon gives an interesting reaction to the Gerudo Mask if Link approaches him as a child while wearing it, saying that it looks like his wife, but then decides against it. They live in Kakariko Village in the House of Skulltula, a house with spider webs and eroded bricks, reputedly one of the oldest houses in the village. It was released in the year 1998 for the Nintendo 64, and was the fifth installment in The Legend of Zelda franchise. This half-bird, half-human race makes multiple references to the Zora, which further confirms this evolution. Firstly, upon encountering Link in the Lost Woods after having ambushed him, the Skull Kid appears to recognize Link, but deems it not to be a problem. — Shikashi By using Zelda's powers as a Sage, she can return Link to his original time with the help of the Ocarina of Time. The Windmill contains an upper level; while standing on the edge of a roof of a nearby house, Link can use hisLongshot to grapple himself to a wooden post located inside a square hole high up on the front of the Windmill. Lastly, since the gender of most of the Twili is unknown, they may all be female except for Zant. The Man Who Could See the Truth is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. However, the Lens of Truth itself is needed to summon the guide that leads Link to the Desert Colossus in the Haunted Wasteland. One in a deep forest... One on a high mountain... One under a vast lake... One within the house of the dead... One inside a goddess of the sand..." The Lens of Truth (used against the shadow boss) and Mask of Truth are closely related to this mysterious man. This raven-like being could very well be a god or goddess to the Sheikah, though neither Sheik nor Impa ever mention a patron deity of the Shadow Folk. It is probable that the Man Who Could See the Truth's eye is metaphorical for the Lens of Truth. How Volvagia died however, is a different story. The Light Spirit, Eldin, and its spring were also named after her likeness. Be warned. If the Sheikah and Hylian's were originally the same race that differed over time after a split between them occurred, it would be only natural for those characteristics distinguishing one from the other to merge and blend if they were joined back together at a later time. is the seventhdungeon from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The boss chamber of the Earth Temple features a massive skeleton that greatly resembles Volvagia, and there is a prevalence of statues and carvings of Volvagia-esque dragons, possibly indicating the presence of Volvagia or its ancestors within the Eldin Volcano. You will never beat my brothers up ahead unless you punish them in the proper order. In the center of that hole is a protruding structure, from the bottom of the water, which could be the dried-up and crusted remains of the original Great Deku Tree. As a tentacle is merely an appendage of a larger organism, the Parasitic Tentacles may be, Some fans theorize that the pedestal in which the Master Sword was placed at the end of Skyward, The relationship Zelda has with Link is close, possibly her closest. In an interview conducted at the time of Ocarina of Time's release, the game's character designer, Satoru Takizawa, and the game's script director, Toru Osawa, stated that the apparent Imprisoning War and the Seven Sages seen in Ocarina of Time are the same ones mentioned in A Link to the Past. For seven long years, he rules the land largely unopposed as the King of Evil, always on the lookout for those two special people chosen by destiny to hold the other two Triforce pieces. However, the. . However, it should be noted that Onox's speech before the final battle implies that he was actually native to the Dark Realm and not to Holodrum. ... Ocarina of Time … A fairy that appears during one of Link's taunt animations, where it comes out and flies around him, physically resembles Navi. If Ganon as we know him is a result of Demise's hatred continuously reincarnating itself, there would be further support for the idea that multiple Ganons could continue to appear even as previous ones are slain. Additionally, it is possible to complete the entire Spirit Temple before completing the Shadow Temple. A small rumor states that the goddesses did not want anyone to find Hyrule hidden beneath the Great Sea, and as Zoras would have found the land quite quickly, the goddesses evolved the Zora on their own. After Link wins the Wing Ceremony, Zelda jumps off the ledge and Link catches her almost as if she was expecting him to. If Link displays the mask to the Boy in the Graveyard, he responds by saying that he had asked his father for one. This line of dialogue has often been regarded as a sign that the two have met before, although this could only have occurred when Link was a baby per the Deku Tree Sprout's account of Link's coming to Kokiri Forest. The Oracle of Seasons, Din of Holodrum, is named after the Goddess of Power. Kaepora Gaebora also seems to hold extensive knowledge of Hyrule and its history—knowledge someone who had been around for ages would have amassed. Further evidence against this theory includes that the invasion of the Interlopers, the ancestors of the Twili, was said to have happened during the Hyrulean Civil War, which was over for a number of years prior to Ganondorf's invasion of Hyrule Castle. The Gerudo symbol can also be seen on Zant's throne and cloak, even before he submitted himself to Ganondorf. This is the case in the noncanonical Ocarina of Time manga, in which Rauru states that his body has withered and died long ago, and that only his soul remains. They also have similarly shaped heads. He is considered an iconic character in video gaming and the very symbol of the Zelda franchise, and remains one of the most popular video game protagonists. Additionally, all of the other adult dungeons seem to have their own representations. Some cutscenes in Ocarina of Time featuring the two together have been interpreted as signs of an attraction. His house could have been sent to the Bottom of the Well, along with certain artifacts, among them the Lens of Truth. It is possible that the father of the Boy in the Graveyard is the Keaton Mask Soldier; after giving the Hyrulean Soldier Zelda's Letter, the soldier asks Link if he can stop by the Happy Mask Shop in Hyrule Castle Town and bring him a Keaton Mask for his son. Furthermore, Ganondorf does not speak of the Twili as if they are his people but seems to imply they were already in the Twilight realm before he was banished there. Also, the Desert and the Mountains are very far apart, and when King Dodongo was defeated, his body was apparently trapped in the lava of his own chamber. This is supported by the fact that the Hero of Time is the ancestor of Link in Twilight Princess as well as how it is stated in A Link to the Past that the Master Sword can only be pulled out from its pedestal by the ones who carry the bloodline of the Knights of Hyrule. This theory is further supported by the fact that Link constantly traveled through the Lost Woods, and children who get lost in the Lost Woods become Skull Children if they're not the Kokiri, which Link is not, he's a Hylian. Rather then attacking, The design of the symbols on Forest, Fire, and Spirit Medallions are first introduced in, It is widely believed--and highly implied in Majora's Mask--that the Skull Kids in Ocarina of. At the end of the game, Navi leaves the land of Hyrule for reasons unknown. The Bunny Hood bears a resemblance to a Pols Voice, a recurring enemy in the series. This would explain why they now had to fly over the water, rather than swim through it. As seen in Majora's Mask, the Zora have trouble living in water that is murky or not at optimal temperature, thus suggesting that the change in water conditions might have forced them to evolve.
